[FRAUD ALERT] Phone Scam Targeting Electronic Taxpayers & Filers

Phone Scam Targeting Taxpayers – Please repost and share!

The Texas Comptrollers office recently notified us of a telephone scam involving an individual falsely claiming to represent the Texas Comptroller of Public Accounts. The caller claims the taxpayer has a tax liability and requests a credit card number. The Comptroller’s office will never ask for credit card information over the telephone. If you receive one of these calls, note the telephone number and contact our office immediately at reportfraud@cpa.texas.gov.
